City go into an away game against Lincoln, with the option to close the gap on MK Dons at the top of the table. City seem to fair much better on the road this season and will expect at least a draw from the game, off the back of a 2-2 home draw against Wycombe.
Bobby Williamson spoke before Friday’s big game and was well aware that the arrival at Sincil Bank could make things more difficult for City.
He said ‘The Lincoln players will be out to impress and they will lift their game I’m sure, that’s a disappointing thing you see in football in that you do see a reaction, these players should have reacted a few weeks ago and they may have kept their past manager in place’.
He continued ‘I find it very disappointing when you look at John Schofield’s record at Lincoln and what he has achieved there, getting to the play offs every other year and then this season they have not done as well as they have done previously’.
‘Their players will be up for it and Peter Jackson can be assured of that but we’ve got to be guarded against that and impose ourselves in the game’.
